Opening day fast approaches. I have started to purchase some 2013 baseball cards. I still need to draft my fantasy team. That will happen this Thursday. As usual, my strategy will be to stock up on quality starting pitchers. This year, I will attend three spring training games. I prefer spring training over regular season games because the tickets are cheaper (but certainly not cheap) and the seats are MUCH better. Also, the weather cannot be beat. I will see the Marlins at Red Sox, Red Sox at Twins, and Orioles at Twins. I will take as many pictures as my camera will allow. I will also try to snag a few in person autographs at the games. If anybody has any spring training success stories with these or any other teams for that matter, please feel free to share. By the way, I will have opening day off from work for the first time in forever. Score!
I have been a New York Yankees fan for my entire life. I have collected baseball cards for over 20 years. I did take a brief hiatus from 1996 to 2004. Nine years is brief, right? I prefer cards made after 2004. I also prefer cards that measure 2.5 in. by 3.5 in. I also have a thing against baseball cards that don't feature a baseball player. I collect all teams and players, even the Red Sox.
